Baccarat Hotel and Residences New York

New York, USA

The hotel

A little piece of Paris in the middle of Manhattan, Baccarat Hotel is all crystal-coated opulence, with silk-covered walls, chandelier-studded ceilings, and hints of platinum and champagne. Your guestroom pairs crisp white linen with glittering mirrors concealing your TV and a red enamel minibar, while a ‘one touch device’ covers your lighting, climate and entertainment, and connects you to your 24 hour Concierge – it even has a button simply labelled ‘champagne’. More than a pied-à-terre, no luxury’s been omitted: a vintage cherry red Citroën acts as your house car, the 60 foot bar’s terrace overlooks the MoMa, the Riviera-inspired indoor pool features cabanas with over-stuffed daybeds, and the Grand Salon’s central table is dressed with French pastries for breakfast, before the space is transformed for indulgent High Teas, nightly champagne soirees, and fine French dining.

This is an outstanding property. We met for drinks to talk business and I was blown away by the service, the quality of the hotel and the experience. If money is no object this is hands down the finest property in NYC.

I couldn't have asked for a better hotel to stay at while in New York! The Baccarat Hotel is the place to stay in New York when in pursuit of luxury, impeccable service, and spectacular food. The employees were extremely attentive and always tried to satisfy my needs. When dining at the restaurant they always had portable phone chargers on hand which is a great little touch. The decor is breath-taking, and the property is a true architectural masterpiece. The hotel and staff have thought about every single detail and it most definitely shows. The location is perfect for someone who wants to be centrally located and right off of Fifth Avenue or close to Columbus Circle. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to have an exceptional and impeccable stay in New York. Read less

Unfortunately we started with an unfavorable first impression as we arrived at the hotel about 1:30pm and were not able to check in until after 3:30pm - though we were continually told by the front desk "it will just be a few more minutes."

Unfortunately we started with an unfavorable first impression as we arrived at the hotel about 1:30pm and were not able to check in until after 3:30pm - though we were continually told by the front desk "it will just be a few more minutes." Our room was very nice - though rather small for a suite; and a large leather couch was impossible to sit on without sliding off. No coffeemaker, and the small refrigerator had very little room to hold anything but their stocked beverages. But we loved the bed and the very quiet, restful sleep. Everything was exceptionally clean, and the staff - housekeeping, restaurant, concierge, front door persons - all were exceptionally helpful and extremely nice. Also loved the decor in the restaurant and lounges, and the beautiful glasses in the room; and the restaurant and lounge area were serene and beautiful. The spa is lovely, and my husband enjoyed his massage very much. Excellent location in mid-town, directly across from MOMA. Easy walk to shops, restaurants, Central Park, Rockefeller Center. Read less
